Hi Vishal and Aadira,

Sorry about that! Our RC1 builds weren't signed, but our GA builds are. Please go to and follow the instructions for "Installing from the RPM Repository." Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi CJ,

Thank you very much for your reply. Do you know when the RC1 builds will be signed ?

(Christian Dahlqvist) #7

Why would you want to use the RC1 build now that the GA build is available??

(Vishal Sharma) #8

Hi Christian,

No i do not want to install RC1 build just want to follow the OS repository. I hope it will be updated soon.

@Vishal_Sharma1 The GA builds are available in package repositories (see the install documentation linked in a previous comment for details). The RC1 builds will never be signed, but even if they were, I'd recommend that you use the GA builds anyway. The RC1 builds are not supported and they include some critical bugs that were fixed in the GA builds.

hey Court,
the first thing i have done is to follow the official guide. The process for installing it using sudo yum install kibana, it's still giving me the same error and trying to install kibana-5.0.0-rc1-x86_64.rpm so what about it?

(Court Ewing) #11

Open up your /etc/yum.repos.d/kibana.repo file (assuming you're on a redhat-based distro) and make sure the [kibana-5.x] block is exactly how it appears in:

Specifically, make sure it does not include -prerelease anywhere in the baseurl, but the best way would be to simply replace the entire existing block with the one from the docs, just to be sure.

Note that modifying the repo file will probably require sudo.

well as i have said earlier, i followed the official guide. My kibana repo looks like below which is exactly same as on official guide
name=Kibana repository for 5.x packages

and still it tries to download the RC1.

I just updated my repo file (same as Vishal's repo file) and upgraded from Kibana 4.6.1 to 5.0 and I got the correct GA 5.0 version;

 Package                                            Arch                                               Version                                             Repository                                                     Size
 kibana                                             x86_64                                             5.0.0-1                                             elasticsearch-5.x                                              39 M

Then I did yum remove kibana and yum install kibana just to make sure a clean install worked like the upgrade.

Maybe you have Kibana listed in more than one repo file? I had that problem once. You could check with something like this;
grep -ri kibana /etc/yum.repos.d/*

Or maybe you need a yum clean or yum updateinfo?

Hello Lee

the issue is solved, it was my fault. I had -prerelease in logstash.repo in base url, which was pulling the RC1 version of Kibana.
